                                    ------------
       
      The more I talk to colleagues around the country, the more I hear about
      Counseling Centers that are using the internet in various ways.  It
      seems to me we should let each other know about our efforts. This little
      document is an attempt to do just that: it contains information on
      different internet resources set up by counseling centers, and how to
      access them directly from your own account. Let me know if you have
      questions or if anything is not clear.  Any suggestions for additions,
      corrections, etc are happily received. The sharing of resources such as
      those listed in this document can be invaluable-we can combine our
      efforts to provide much more effective services to students (and others)
      than if we each work separately.  For example, if there is information
      that you would like to include on your local gopher that is already
      currently available somewhere else, you can easily and seamlessly make a
      link to that information, placing the entries directly in your menu. If
      your site has something that you would like others to know about (e.g.,
      gophers, mosaic, ftp sites, muds/moos, and mailing lists), send the
      information to me at dgthomas@acsu.buffalo.edu and I'll include the
      information in the next edition of this document.

      Important Note:
         The Ball State staff has concerns about other schools tying directly
         into their materials:  "referral information to only our center is
         provided so what happens if someone's distress is increased by
         reading the material and then they have no one to turn to, and this
         would open Concerned Charlie to the world and we have a limited
         capacity to respond."
